Teacher brings life to learning Prairie Crossing Elementary educator says engagement is key to pupils’ retention By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Kelly Cargo displays a wide, gap-toothed smile when she talks about her favorite technology project. “The Best Part About Me,” the Prairie Crossing Elementary fourth-grader said. “You’ve got to choose three things you like about yourself.” With help from technology teacher Debbie Blair, Cargo learned a computer program that allowed her to create a video and zoom in on Cargo’s favorite physical feature — her big, blue eyes. Like Cargo, sixth-grader Jordan McDonald doesn’t need time to recall her favorite. Though it was nearly three years ago, the

memory is fresh. “It was what our passion is,” she said. “We did a video of what we really like to do.” For McDonald, that was karate. That near-instant recall is among the ways Blair sees technology changing education, and why she believes so fiercely in what she does. Her son, a student at Prairie Crossing in Parker, created a virtual scrapbook on astronaut Neil Armstrong. “This was done in March or April and I know my son could still tell me about Neil Armstrong,” she said. “That’s because of the level of engagement.” Initially a third-grade teacher at Prairie Crossing, Blair was named the school’s technology teacher seven years ago. The floating position takes her into every classroom, working with kindergartners, sixthgraders and all levels in between, on projects related to their studies. Classroom teachers work alongside Blair in a unique, shared teaching style.

“We were the first school in the district to adopt the co-teaching model for technology,” said Blair. “It’s essentially embedded staff development. Teachers are learning to use the tools, too.” Second-grade teacher Brigitte Cranmer said some teachers initially were hesitant. “Debbie has pushed, prepared and given a lot of support to the teachers,” she said. “It took years to accomplish, but I really think Prairie Crossing leads in technology.” Blair’s position melds perfectly with the concept of 21st-century education, and her projects typically include the four C’s emphasized as part of the Douglas County School District’s curriculum: Critical thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication. “I think we do a lot of things at Prairie Crossing technologically that other schools may do, but maybe not to the same extent,” Blair said. “The different ways to use

As Douglas County prepares for a quarter of its population to be over the age of 60 by 2030, county officials are beginning to discuss the needs of today’s senior population from Deckers to Parker and everywhere in between. The Partnership of Douglas County Governments is putting forth a collaborative effort between all the towns, cities and special districts within the county, along with the school and library districts, to learn exactly what needs are out there and to what extent individuals and families in the county are aware of current available resources. As part of that process, community leaders and elected officials will have a listening tour lasting a month and a half, starting Aug. 2 in Deckers. The tour has two scheduled stops each in Castle Rock and Parker and will also pass through Roxborough, Larkspur, Castle Pines, Highlands Ranch, Louviers and Lone Tree. The listening tour is being organized to give residents the opportunity to share their own visions for the community and address with county officials where there are gaps in current services. According to county spokeswoman Wendy Holmes, Douglas County is the only member of the Denver Regional Council of Governments that is addressing such a situation in this manner.

Fair back, bigger and better Plenty to do, plenty to see at annual event in Castle Rock By Virginia Grantier

It’s not just a spectator sport, this year’s annual Douglas County Fair and Rodeo: In addition to watching livestock competitions and rodeos, there are free pancakes, pie-eating contests, dances, carnival rides, hands-on ag-education opportunities — and, of course, the cricket races. The fair is Aug. 8-11, but many of the preliminary events are already underway. The fourth annual cricket races for a couple hundred kids and crickets will take place at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 9, and racers are reminded not to bring their own crickets. It’s not because race organizers are worried about seeing super crickets with suspiciously large muscle-bound insect bodies. They want to spare young cricket-handlers from perhaps losing their cricket pet, says Fair continues on Page 22

The Partnership of Douglas County Governments is embarking on a collaborative effort with all of the county’s municipalities, the school district and the library district to gather information on the current and future quality of life needs of those 60 and older living in the county. Transportation, health services, and affordable housing are all primary areas of study. File photo

Races offer fun as summer dwindles Triathlon, 5K/10K set for back-to-back weekends

EVENT INFORMATION Kids’ Try-athlon — 7 a.m. Aug. 3 at the Parker Rec Center So Long to Summer 5K/10K — 8 a.m. Aug. 10 at Salisbury Park

By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Parker residents who feel they have barely had a chance to enjoy the summer have two more opportunities for fun in the sun. At least sunshine is what organizers and participants in the sixth annual Kids’ TRYathlon and fifth annual So Long to Summer 5K/10K are hoping for. The family-oriented running events — on back-to-back weekends Aug. 3 and Aug. 10, respectively — are expected to attract a combined 500 people. The Kids’ TRY-athlon was developed as a way for children ages 6-12 to experience new sports in a non-competitive setting. Based at the Parker Recreation Center, the participants are timed in swimming, biking and running. Each child gets a race bib and shirt, not to mention a sense of accomplishment at the end. “It’s a really empowering thing when a 6-year-old can say, `Hey, I completed a triathlon,’” said Hillary Roemersberger, fitness and wellness coordinator for the Town of Parker. The TRY-athlon has caught on, as registration has more than doubled since its inception. It’s particularly exciting for the

Two town-sponsored running events — the Kids’ TRY-athlon Aug. 3 and the “So Long to Summer” race Aug. 10 — will give residents another chance at outdoor summer fun. Courtesy photo progeny of triathletes, who normally watch from the sidelines but have the chance to actually get involved in a triathlon with kids their age. The So Long to Summer course layout was designed with beginners in mind, and the event is advertised as non-competitive, although some runners compete to qualify

for other races, such as the Bolder Boulder. The So Long to Summer route, which leads from Salisbury Park to the Cherry Creek Regional Trail, is certified by USA Track and Field, Roemersberger said. The main goal is to bring out a mix of participants — dogs and kids in strollers are encouraged — to get active in the morning

and enjoy Salisbury Park’s scenic views. “The idea is it’s a way for everybody to come out and enjoy the end of summer before school starts,” Roemersberger said. Officials added a 10K portion this year and have run a training program at the recreation center in recent weeks to enable more serious racers to prepare. A free kids’ dash will be open to those ages 8 and younger. With an estimated 350 participants, So Long to Summer is among the larger run/ walks in Parker, but it pales in comparison to the Turkey Day 5K, which drew around 1,200 guilt-ridden people last year. The $15 pre-registration period for the Kids’ TRY-athlon closes Aug. 2, but racers can sign up the day of the event for $5 more. Pre-registration for So Long to Summer closes on Aug. 8, but the $5 fee applies for people who sign up the day of the race. It costs $25 for the 5K and $35 for 10k. The entry fee includes a pancake breakfast. For more information or to sign up for the events, visit www.parkeronline.org and click on the “parks and recreation” tab.

parker news in a hurry Events set for Solheim week

of human-caused fires.

Months of planning are about to pay off with the Solheim Cup women’s golf tournament heading to the Colorado Golf Club Aug. 13-18. The event is expected to bring more than 100,000 visitors from around the world to watch players from Europe and the United States face off. In celebration of the tournament, the Parker community is hosting multiple events outside the golf course, decorating downtown Parker and encouraging local businesses to decorate. In addition, the mayor and town council passed a proclamation to declare the week of the Solheim Cup “Red, White and Blue Week.” The town is encouraging residents to get involved by taking part in various events, including the Parker Chamber of Commerce Wine Walk Aug. 8 in downtown Parker and the High School Girls’ Golf Colorado Tournament Aug. 11 at Black Bear and Pradera golf courses. High school female golfers are encouraged to participate in the unique tournament, which follows match-play rules similar to those of the Solheim Cup. Sign up at www.tiny.cc/ girlsgolf.

Town calls off fire ban Al Dente Cooking: 7/10/13 Jordan Reigel owner, Tracy Ross & Geralyn Miller

Parker Fire Warden Lt. Doreen Jokerst with the Town of Parker’s Emergency Management Office lifted the temporary fire restriction order for the Town of Parker July 26. Due to recent rainfall and cooler temperatures, the danger of wildfire has been reduced. However, people are still encouraged to be vigilant, as the danger of fire is always present. The Town of Parker will continue to closely monitor the fire danger and make appropriate adjustments to reduce the risk

Climbing wall gear free in August

Harness and shoe rental for adults using the climbing wall at the Parker Fieldhouse are free during August. It provides a chance to try the challenging rock wall while paying only for Fieldhouse admission. New or experienced climbers are invited to climb during any open climb time. Two attendants are available to assist with proper fitting of harness and belay climbers so they enjoy a safe experience.

Parker joins pickleball craze

Pickleball has been described as the fastest-growing sport in the nation, and Parker has caught pickleball fever. A combination of several racquet sports, pickleball is played on a badminton-size court, one-third the size of a traditional tennis court, with a net that is a bit lower than tennis. Players use a hard wooden or composite paddle and hit a light, plastic wiffle-style ball. The game is especially appealing to aging adults because, unlike tennis, the game covers less space and it is not as much about running as it is about strategy and knowing where to hit the ball. Parker Parks and Recreation started offering year-round drop-in pickleball for ages 18 and over in 2010 and the program has grown to up to 40 players on any given day. In the summer, participants meet for free drop-in at the outdoor rinks on the south side of the Parker Recreation Center, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and Monday and Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Parker Fieldhouse, for a $5 fee ($4 for ages 62 and over.) For more information about pickleball and other adult sports, call 303-805-6311 or email bbullock@parkeronline.org.

Republicans interview school candidatesL Local party continues strategy used in 2009, 2011 elections

‘We could have 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats and there’s no indication of their party affiliation. That

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The leader of the Douglas County Republicans said the party’s involvement in school board elections helps ensure Republican principles are upheld locally. Colorado state statutes prohibit a school board candidate from running “as a candidate of any political party,” but that doesn’t prevent the local Republicans from endorsing board candidates — a practice they began in 2009 and are continuing with the November 2013 election. Through early August, members of a Douglas County Republicans’ interview committee will meet with board candidates who want the party’s endorsement — regardless of the candidate’s political affiliation. The executive committee will vote on endorsements for the four open seats in mid-August. Their choices will be based on those candidates “most likely to support the principles of the Republican Party,” local party chairman Craig Steiner said. The Douglas County Republicans endorsed the seven current board members in the 2009 and 2011 elections. Steiner said the endorsements are criti-

makes it very hard for voters to know who to vote for.’ Douglas County GOP chairman Craig Steiner cal because a school board candidate’s party affiliation is not indicated on a ballot. That was problematic in traditionally conservative Douglas County. “We could have 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats and there’s no indication of their party affiliation,” Steiner said during a July 26 breakfast in Castle Rock. “That makes it very hard for voters to know who to vote for. In Douglas County, when the voters know, Republicans pull anywhere from 60 to 75 percent of the vote. It’s clear that being a Republican and being supported by the Republican Party is something voters value.” Involvement in school board elections also is part of a broader Republican strategy. “This is where it starts — at the local level,” Steiner said. “We can complain about what’s going on in Washington, but

our sphere of influence is Douglas County. As long as all of our county parties are doing these things, we’re going to start seeing good results at the grassroots county level and going up from there.” Conversely, the Douglas County Democrats have no strategy for the school board election. “We don’t take the same approach because it’s nonpartisan,” chairman Mike Jones said. “We believe in public education. If people ask us, we tell them to vote for those who support public education. But there’s no big strategy.” Colorado Association of School Boards deputy executive director Jane Urschel said in an August 2012 interview that the association views service on a school board as “the highest level of service,” one that historically rose above party politics. “Those who were elected would focus on

esLarkspur man seeks school board post Boyd says he sees both sides of education issues

f the they ng to ” she

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

itical tive-

When Stephen Boyd and his family left California in search of a new home more rty is than two decades ago, he had no idea where ually they’d land. Larkspur caught his eye from iples the driver’s seat of his car, and 22 years later, he and his wife still live in the country outthat side Larkspur. ts or Boyd believes he’ll bring that same openrs of minded approach to the Douglas County f the School Board. The District D candidate hope seeks the seat now held by Carrie Mendoza. Mendoza has not yet said whether she will Kevin run for the post. n in“I see the two sides of the story and I unubliderstand what’s going on,” said the 65-yearold Republican, who taught in El Paso orseCounty’s Lewis-Palmer School District 38. nized “It would be foolish to take sides. My feelto do ing is that maybe a school board could use esent somebody who is just steeped in education ecial elec-

as a teacher, as an administrator.” His wife, Kristin, also is a District 38 teacher. “We’re just concerned about education in general in the U.S.,” Boyd said. Boyd was a businessman for 33 years who retired and then earned his master’s degree in education. He worked as a District 38 high school teacher in Monument for seven years before retiring a second time. He now is pursuing a doctoral degree in education. “I’m not sure what I’ll end up doing with it, but something political,” he said. “I’ve been a very politBoyd ical person my whole life.” Boyd spent most of his life in the San Francisco Bay area. Growth and an earthquake prompted the family to seek a new home. “To tell you the truth, we just packed up all the kids, put everything in the biggest van I could rent and started heading east,” Boyd said. “Neither of us had jobs. We were

‘I think I have enough knowledge base that I could help with how these decisions are made.’

Stephen Boyd just headed down south (of Denver) looking around. I pulled over on the side of the road and said, `This looks nice. This is where we’ll live.’” “This” was Larkspur. The couple’s four sons, who attended District 38 schools because they were closer to their home than any Douglas County schools, are grown and gone from the family home. Boyd now is hoping to tie his interests in politics and education together. Boyd said he has no connection to the Douglas County Republicans, who will in August endorse a slate of candidates. Nevertheless, Boyd thinks he has a handle on the issues facing the DCSD board, including controversy surrounding the

voucher program and changes to teachers’ pay and evaluations. “You’ve got one side that I think the Republican Party helped get in,” he said, “and there’s another outside group of parents and political folks who don’t like the changes that they’ve made. I understand the fight back and forth because it’s supposedly a nonpartisan position.” Though Boyd said he doesn’t know the process that led the board to make some of its controversial changes, “I think I have enough knowledge base that I could help with how these decisions are made.” Kevin Leung, who ran unsuccessfully for the school board in 2009, also is running for the District D board spot.

opinions / yours and ours

Preconceptions don’t stand up to reality I always keep a few apologies handy. Learning how and when to apologize is very important. I’ve said something or I’ve done something I’ve regretted more times than I want to count. But I did just that one night. I made a list of my major lapses, and there have been some humdingers. Usually I had a partner, an accomplice, but I never blamed him. He has a Russian name, Smirnoff. I was told never to ruin a good apology with a bad excuse. I try to follow that advice, but sometimes I have to apologize for my apology. Emails are not always the best way to say you’re sorry. Sometimes it’s an email that gets me in trouble in the first place. I can be too abrupt, too facetious, too unkind. And the instant that I click “send” I want a redaction that I can’t have. Some of us don’t apologize. Tough guys don’t apologize because it’s a sign of weakness. Did you hear the words “I’m sorry” or “I regret” during the James “Whitey” Bulger trial? I have apologized over and over, made amends or attempted to, and it makes me

feel a little better. But I hate the fact that I can be a jerk. I don’t need to express my opinion whenever I have one. But I do. Having an opinion column puts me on guard about perceived offenses. There might be something to write about. I am sandwiched by renters, and the houses have been rented countless times since I’ve lived in mine. My property is groomed. The yards next door haven’t been groomed since Missy Franklin was born, and the homeowners association knows my voice. (Note: The current renters are exceptions.) Everyone doesn’t have the time or

money to groom a yard, or the health or the energy. I just started driving with Meals For Wheels. I’m doing it for a number of reasons. I need to get out of the house, because isolating is not healthy for someone like me. And I need to be reminded about what’s important. I was offered Route 7, which takes me around parts of Englewood I have never seen before. Many of the homes look tired, and the homeowners look tired too — but they are doing the best they can. Yards and porches are littered. Things are left where they were last used, and that may have been weeks, months, or years. Doors open when I knock with a meal, and a smiling face looks at me. There is always a smiling face, and the old grouch smiles right back. I know I might be the only human being they talk with on Fridays. Many of them have devoted dogs. Bless our dogs, right? I don’t know any of them, but I can see biographical details everywhere, like military decals and affectionately arranged

flower beds. Most of their yards need makeovers. I would have been on the phone if I lived next to them. But not now. When I hand them a meal I see a graying life at the train station, with a ticket for the next destination. I might be looking at a World War II veteran or a greatgrandmother no one cares about anymore except relatives, maybe. All but a few live alone. I live alone. It’s easy for me to see myself in them, someday. One woman has animal shelter eyes. I can’t get them out of my mind. I told her to “Behave this weekend, and I will see you next Friday.” She broke into a smile, and so did I. The yards next door to me look fine. I’m sorry I felt otherwise. I plan to write about Route 7 again. I’ve said this before: I’m still learning. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

letters to the editor Fundraiser was beautiful event

Figure out what it is you want Do you remember the pop song by the Spice Girls, “Tell me what you want, what you really really want, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want”? And then the lyrics are repeated several times. Have you ever been asked, “What is it that you really want?” Or maybe you have even asked yourself, “What is it that I want the most in life?” Does your answer change based on either situation? I often find that we tend to be more guarded when answering the question about what we want when asked by another person, and much more honest and deep when we look ourselves in the mirror and answer ourselves when no one else is around. Do we want material things? Do we want money? Do we want love? What is the thing we want most in this life? After 40 years of research, The Zig Ziglar Organization netted the list down to eight things that people really really want: To be happy, to be healthy, to be reasonably prosperous (and some people would like to be unreasonably prosperous), to have security, true friends, peace, solid family relationships and hope. Think about it, would you trade your happiness, health, prosperity, security, friendship, peace, family relationships and hope for a second or third home, a new car, jewelry, a good time, or even a great time? And does there absolutely have to be one or the other? I am a big proponent of “and” not “or,” and believe if we strive for the things we want without compromising our character or integrity we can have all of the material things we desire as well as all of the more important things that money will not buy. One of the things that I really really want in life is peace. And this is one of the reasons I really love living here in Colorado. There is such a fantastic sense of peace when hiking in the mountains, walking in our open spaces, skiing on through the trees or in a secluded or quiet area on the

hill. Sure, skiing requires equipment, proper clothing and a ski pass, but hiking and walking bring me peace with absolutely no investment from me other than my time. Our sunrises and sunsets observed each morning and evening bring me peace and hope, and once again without any cost. I set goals and pursue dreams. And when I look at the list of eight things that we all want, at some level I recognize that I am doing OK in several areas but still need to develop and grow in others. I would encourage you to write the list of these eight topic, Happy, Healthy, Reasonably Prosperous, Secure, Friendship, Peace, Family Relationships and Hope. Next to each one just simply put a check mark next to the ones you feel you are doing well in and an asterisk next to the ones you want to see yourself develop. Once we have reached an acceptable level in all eight areas, we can enjoy all of the things this life offers in every aspect of our lives. And it always amazes me that when someone shares with me that they have strengthened each of these areas, that some of their material desires and other things simply fall into place too. How are you doing in these eight categories? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and together let’s make this a better than good week.

The Spa For A Cause Fundraiser on July 20 in Castle Rock for Maddy Collins was a beautiful event! The main purpose for the fundraiser was to spread awareness about Marfan syndrome and allow guests to meet Maddy, hear her testimony and be pampered with facials, foot and hand spas, education on Marfan syndrome and much more! About 25 guests were able to attend! The fundraiser raised around $900, amen! Maddy even had a very special guest her age come meet her, who is also living with Marfan syndrome! It was such a blessing to see Maddy connect with another child going through similar life experiences with Marfan syndrome! We would like to share how much Maddy and our family appreciate the outpour of compassion and love from those who attended the fundraiser as well as those who showed compassion even though they could not attend! Maddy is healing from her most recent eye surgery with amazing strides and is full of hope and courage! Our family believes that God has Maddy in the palm of His hand and is in complete control of her medical issues and that He will guide her through her fifth-grade year at South Ridge with amazing accomplishments and to help those who do not understand her Marfan syndrome and just LOVE them regardless of their hurtful words! Maddy has several surgeries in her future with her spine, aortic valve and orthodontics, and several therapies she will be involved in after these surgeries. We again

Driving habits shed light on character Sitting behind the steering wheel can reveal what is in the heart! The guy behind me did not think I was going fast enough, but I was going as fast as I could. My commute to Castle Rock was all the way from Lakewood in my Jeep Wrangler. Air conditioning in my Jeep is taking the windows off, so I wanted to go fast. The pedal was to the floor, but the slower traffic just past the hospital slowed my momentum, so I couldn’t get my little four-cylinder to go past 60 mph as I headed up the hill towards Castle Pines a few miles later. My Jeep has a little over 250,000 miles on it, so I knew what was going to happen and got all the way over into the right lane. In my rear-view mirror I could see him waving his hands and saying things that I probably shouldn’t put in the paper. Did he love his wife and kids so much that he was that eager to see them? Did he not recognize there were three lanes to our left so that he could pass me? Did he not know I was going as fast as I possibly could and that I too loved my family and wanted to get home?

He continued to express his anger when I kept going straight and he exited. For the few seconds our vehicles were next to each other he lectured me with his horn. It did not warn me I made a mistake or try to caution me for some reason. It was his expression of anger and disapproval of me. I was in his way and, apparently, who he was and whatever he was doing was more important and/or correct than who I was and what I was doing. Discourtesy is really disregard for others. It does not honor who they are or consider what they are going through. I have caught myself making similar mistakes. The guy in front of me at the coffee shop was way to slow in find-

ing his parking place. “Come on Pops,” I mumbled. “It’s not that complicated. Just put your car into an open space.” You can imagine my chagrin when I saw him get the wheelchair out of his trunk and place his adult son in it so they could enjoy a dose of caffeine. Early one morning I was completing a hospice call. A mother had passed and the grieving family left our facility and headed to their cars. We had been together so I stood still and watched them leave. Since they were getting in their cars, it occurred to me that these dozen people were going to head back into everyday life with weeping inside of them and the people at their work, school, stores and in traffic were going to have no idea how much they were grieving. Maybe one of them was the person that did not go the instant the light turns green, lost in their thoughts. Church parking lots can reveal the level of spiritual maturity of the congregation and the effectiveness of the sermon. A few minutes after they were singing praises, praying about their needs and being exhorted from the Holy Scriptures, they will

have the opportunity to prove how much they can let it affect their lives by the way the drive. And if you are going to be an aggressive driver, please save the reputation of all of us Christians and do not put a fish on your car or a bumper sticker about your church. It is a bad testimony, because it shows that you really do not respect other people, let alone the law. I would like to find a cure for cancer, eliminate crime, fix the economy and usher in world peace. But I probably should not worry about such grand things until I actually do something that is possible every time I get behind the steering wheel. That challenge reveals what is in my heart and that is something God can change and it will be a difference many times every day.

Teachers, schools fuel home sales

The majority of my 28-year career selling real estate has taken place in Douglas County, where the achievements of the Douglas County School District have spoken boldly to families all across the country. I deal with numerous clients every year that have the opportunity to choose where they work, and live where they please with their families. The weather, topography, and activities in Colorado all provide a great draw for these families. But for those with children, the schools in a given area are often the focal point of their decision to settle there. I no longer have to even pitch that Douglas County is considered one of the top school districts in the country; my customers come to me saying “Louie, I want to live here. I want my kids to learn and grow up here.” Statements like these are often expressed by parents accustomed to East or West Coast private schools, where they would pay upwards of $20,000 a year in primary education costs. They literally could not be happier with the quality of education being provided by our fantastic teachers and administrators. Our underlying nature, as parents, is to want the very best for our kids, especially in their educational opportunities. DCSD provides choices and numerous school options for parents to place their children in the learning environment that is most beneficial to their specific needs and desires. The success of this approach has echoed across the country as the reputation of always-successful Douglas County schools continues to spread farther and farther. As a proud father of two children in DCSD, I feel it’s imperative to listen to the

parents rather than surrounding noise when judging the success of schools in our county. We love sending our kids to school every day, and the proof of their growth is visible in the pudding of their triumphs year after year. Louie Lee Castle Pines Village

Candidate rejects party interview

I have respectfully declined the offer for an interview with the Douglas County Republican School Board Candidate Interview Committee. The interview committee’s plan is to select the school board candidates to endorse in the upcoming nonpartisan race. I believe that local, nonpartisan school board elections should not be drawn into party politics. Decisions and agendas should not become strongly influenced by party ideologies instead of serving the people and the children in our schools. Besides, the Douglas County Republican Party leadership has openly supported the current school board incumbents and has repeatedly promoted how great they are on its website, Facebook page, and at numerous party gatherings. This selection process is obviously biased, undemocratic and is certainly not transparent to the public. The last thing that we need is to have future school board candidates forced to become active members of the party to have reasonable chances of winning. The resources a party can bring to bear will easily outpace the average person. This will discourage many qualified candidates from running and place an emphasis on party loyalties. In this election, I will not solicit or

Ejecting school leader was missed opportunity I am writing this letter in regard to Jane Reuter’s article that alluded to Douglas County School Board President John Carson showing up at an informational house party “uninvited.” It says a lot about some of these “house parties” being hosted by organized groups of parents with the aim of conducting a “conversation” about the education of our children that they would give the boot to

a top official (he did receive an invitation) when such a person would have a very informed view as one currently involved in policy that directly affects their children. Here was an opportunity for attendees to grill, interrogate, clarify, discuss and debate directly with the “head honcho.” Instead, he was ungraciously uninvited; given the bum’s rush; and accused of being an intimidating bully out to quash any and all dissent. I applaud Mr. Carson for making himself available in the first place. Sorry, Ms. Gonzales and Ms. Lynam: It just doesn’t wash. The closed-minded bully fears open debate — you did a disservice to your bona fide parent attendees that wanted to hear all sides. Or maybe that’s just not part of your agenda.

‘Stranger’ reports bogus, police say Sheriff ’s office likely to seek criminal charges By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Authorities with different police agencies say three recent reports of strangers approaching women and children are all false. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Parker Police Department said their investigators have determined that the reports made between July 16 and July 23 are not credible. Now two of those who made the claims face criminal charges, including false reporting to authorities. The sheriff’s office issued an alert July 19 out of “concern for public safety” after two women reported incidents in Highlands Ranch. One woman said a Hispanic male approached her July 16 near her home in the Northridge Park area of Highlands Ranch and asked her to go with him. When she refused, she said, he got in a white van and quickly drove away. Three days later, another woman said a “dark-skinned man” put his arm around her waist in a parking lot at the Taco Bell at Blakeland Drive at Highway 85, just outside Highlands Ranch. She said she pushed him away and he left in a white van. The Parker police responded July 23 to a call of a man in a white van approaching two young children in Jola Park in Clarke Farms and offering them candy. That report was also found to be untrue, with officials saying two hours after an alert was issued that the “information may not be as credible as initially presumed.” Sgt. Andy Coleman, public information officer for the Parker police, said the department is not considering criminal charges because the false report came from an 8-year-old girl. He defended against criticism the department received on Facebook for disseminating what turned out to be false information, calling the situation a “Catch-22.” “We want to get it out to everybody as soon as possible when we get a report like that,” Coleman said. “The downside

‘We want to get it out to everybody as soon as possible when we get a report like that.’ Sgt. Andy Coleman is when someone is lying and providing a false report. But if we ever waited, I think people would be upset if we didn’t provide that information.” The sheriff’s office had encouraged residents to immediately call in suspicious activity involving a Hispanic male in a white van to its Major Case Tip Line. The DCSO says “it is likely charges will be recommended” to the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office for the calls. False reporting, a Class 3 misdemeanor, is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $750 fine. Ron Hanavan, spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, said the erroneous reports are “resource-taxing” and cause a “breach of the peace of the community.” “It can be very disturbing to the public. It puts them on edge and makes them feel uncomfortable, especially when we’re notifying them,” Hanavan said. He noted that the two Highlands Ranch reports were “distinctly different” and the women did not know each other, nor were they aware of one another’s reports. It was when the second report involving similar circumstances came in that the sheriff’s office informed the public of a possible threat. Hanavan declined to comment on how investigators determined the stories were untrue, only saying there were “multiple detectives” assigned to the cases. He said that the DCSO generally does not release information about false reports until an arrest is made, but that the department wanted to “put the public at ease” instead of waiting a few weeks.

Seniors Continued from Page 1

Part of the reason behind the county’s actions, said Commissioner Jack Hilbert, is that Douglas County has the fastest growing senior population per capita in the state and is among the top 10 nationally when it comes to an increase in elders. “Because of that we have to start addressing this now,” he said. “We don’t have, in my opinion, 10 years to get these answers. We need to start getting these answers in the next three to five years to address our current population.” Part of the reason to address this in a collaborative fashion, he said, is so that services aren’t being duplicated. With multiple municipalities working together to solve existing issues among the senior population, it will limit the use of taxpayer dollars. Hilbert anticipates some of the hottest topics being discussed will be transportation, affordable housing and health care. “We don’t know the level which each will rise to, but we want to make sure citizens are being served and work with the private sector to make that hap-

technology are built into the kids here.” Students typically work in small groups, creating multi-layered presentations. Fifth-graders last year wrote songs about the U.S. government’s branches, recorded those

songs with an audio program and uploaded them to a video program. Such projects create memories students retain. “We don’t just want them to regurgitate information,” Blair said. Each student also has an eportfolio of projects they’ve done throughout their years at Prairie Crossing — “a living history,” Blair said, of all they’ve accomplished. Blair’s job, like the e-portfolios, is ever-changing.

“I love how technology evolves,” she said. “What I did even five years ago, I would never think of doing with students now. The expectations I have for them change, too.” What remains constant is Blair’s goal to blend information students need to know with methods they’ve known their entire lives. “These kids are truly digital natives,” Blair said. “We need to capitalize on that.”

Managing Broker RE Professionals 10200 E. Girard Ave #B230 Denver, CO 80231 720-365-7981 Ben.eyasu@gmail.com www.reproscolorado.com Where were you born? I was born in Ethiopia and grew up in San Francisco. How long have you lived in the area? I moved to Colorado in 2002 and have been here since. What do you like most about it? I like Colorado for its beautiful mountains, the fourseason weather, and the variety of outdoor activities it offers. Colorado also has great people, an easy/laid back lifestyle, and a great place to raise a family.

I specialize in Residential Real Estate with first time homebuyers and investors. I invest a great deal of time researching the market in the area and keeping myself informed with the ever-changing market. I point my clients to the appropriate resources when they are not clear on where to get the right information pertaining to the home buying process. I facilitate that service by collaborating with other credible financial agency representatives, government program experts, home inspection agents etc., with the intent of simplifying what can be an overwhelming task to my clients. My clients appreciate my honesty and integrity, and most importantly, feel at ease to come to me with any questions. What is the most challenging part of what you do? I currently find most challenging the changes happening in the real estate market in Colorado. The real estate market has

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? I love spending my free time with my 10-month-old son and family. We enjoy traveling, watching sporting events, and all the great outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? My advice would be to de-clutter the house, have it smell clean and fresh, and give it an inviting appeal. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Have patience. Looking for a home can be a tasking experience, but with the right attitude and understanding of what the market has to offer, it can also be fun. What is the most unusual thing you have encountered while working in Real Estate? Sitting at a closing, a buyer literally came with a suitcase full of cash. The buyer had to redeposit before we can close.

How long have you worked in Real Estate? I have been working in the Real Estate for eight years now.

Rodeo bucks, barrels into town Family-friendly events run at fairgrounds for four-night stretch By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Dust off the hats and shine up the boots. It’s rodeo time. More than 30,000 people are expected to pass through the gates of the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo Aug. 8-11, and it’s a good bet that many will stop by the arenas at the Douglas County Fairgrounds to take in some rodeo action. Rodeo-related events are planned all four nights of the fair, including an openingRodeo StaRt night Professional RotimeS deo Cowboys Association championship at 7 7 p.m. Aug. 8 p.m. featuring 12 to 15 7:30 p.m. Aug. 9 bull riders. Each nightly performance will feature 6:30 p.m. Aug. 10 bareback riding, steer 1 p.m. Aug. 11 wrestling, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping and team roping, and will conclude with bull riding. It’s those rough stock events that keep Todd Spencer, chairman of the fair’s board of directors, coming back each year. “It’s always fun to watch a 150-pound guy trying to ride a 2,000-pound snorting animal,” said Spencer, who has served on

Apparently, there have been times when the cricket handlers get so excited during the race that instead of encouraging the cricket to move faster by patting the ground behind the cricket, they pat the cricket, Woodrick said. And there have been times when the winning cricket handler, so excited about the win, has jumped up and down where they wished they hadn’t. So, the extension office provides the crickets, about 300 of them bought from a local pet store.

because of the event’s storied, 95-year history in a county originally built on a tradition of ranching and equestrian sports — is meant to encourage more recent arrivals to “experience all that Douglas County has to offer,” Spencer said. “Douglas County is getting more and more urbanized, so we’re bringing country to town when the rodeo and fair comes to Castle Rock,” he said, before encouraging attendees to wear Western outfits. The crowds grow every year and organizers have expanded a reserved seating area in the outdoor arena to accommodate more guests. They will likely need it, as rodeo tickets are expected to sell out. Each night will feature a special ceremony honoring different groups. The Patriot Rodeo will get underway at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 9 and honor members of the United States military. Active-duty personnel and veterans will receive discounted entry. The following evening, during the busy Saturday night rodeo, fair officials will honor longtime board member Bob Thomas, who passed away less than a month after last year’s fair and rodeo, and dedicated volunteer Allen Bader. The Sunday afternoon rodeo, for which tickets will cost only $5, is being billed as the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink Rodeo” and is a grassroots cowboy campaign to fight breast cancer. “It’s going to be another big Sunday,” Spencer said.

leader and superintendent of the beef program. “The fair offers all the ability to see our past, present and future Western and agricultural heritage all together in one week even though this lifestyle is experienced and enjoyed all year long by many right here in Douglas County,” Partridge said. “It is true Americana.” Partridge says they’re noticing a strong and rising interest in gardening, and in raising chickens — and he’s guessing it’s because some urban communities now allow chickens. “We have over 400 chicken entries this year,” he said, about a 22 percent increase. “We’ve had to rearrange the barn for chickens. It’s amazing.” Spencer is excited about how the county has been successful in drawing people from Highlands Ranch and other areas. Last year’s fair attendance was up about 36

percent. It’s much more fun than when he was showing at the fair as a kid and about the only people there were people competing. “It’s more exciting, more stuff going on,” he said. And the facility is much different. “We have put over $30 million in capital improvements in the fairgrounds,” Spencer said. And it continues with the still-underconstruction Heritage Plaza project, which is an outdoor concert and shaded area. Part of the plaza will have a memorial made of 6,000 bricks that people can buy for $250 a brick and have a family member’s name or business name put on it. Proceeds go to the Douglas County Fair Foundation’s endowment fund, to be used for unexpected expenses or capital projects for the fair, which usually breaks even, Spencer said.

Phamaly company revisits a classic Beloved ‘Fiddler’ comes to downtown Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Since “Fiddler on the Roof” first was produced on Broadway in 1964, it has been so popular that its music and story of human strengths have become part of our cultural fabric: “Tradition,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “To Life …” Theater companies around the world produce it and audiences come with children and grandchildren to see it over and over, reliving a piece of history for many families with Russian ancestors. Phamaly, a theater company for actors with physical, emotional and cognitive disabilities, has chosen it as the 2013 summer musical production and delivers a lovely, well-paced musical through Aug. 11 at Denver Center for the Performing Arts, with fine voices and nice staging, directed by Steve

if you go “Fiddler on the Roof” plays through Aug. 11 at the Space Theatre, Denver Performing Arts Complex. Presented by Phamaly, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $30/$34, 303-893-4100, phamaly.org. or the Denver Center ticket office.

Wilson. Choreographed by Debbie Stark, with musical direction by Donna Debreceni, it speaks to spirit and strength. Russian painter Marc Chagall’s “The Fiddler” and other like images in his work are cited as inspiration in an online history of the musical, based on Sholem Aleichem’s story, “Tevye’s Daughters” or “Tevye the Milkman.” Of special note in this production are mother and son fiddlers: Sophia Hummel, a student at San Francisco Conservatory, plays with a special bowing device because her right arm is amputated below the elbow, and 11-year-old Leslie Wilburn, concertmaster in the Denver Young Artists Orchestra, is polished and assured as he appears more frequently than is usual in “Fiddler” productions. Mark Disette is playing Tevye a second time for Phamaly, and portrays the milkman’s mixture of stubbornness and good humor skillfully. We can relate to this traditional Papa with stubborn daughters — and Rachel Van Scoy, Kenzie Kilroy and Lindsay Palmer as the marriageable daughters are charming and determined. Kathleen Traylor, an original Phamaly member, plays the conservative mother/ wife Golde and Ashley Kelashian takes over the stage when she appears as the village matchmaker Yente. The “Tevye’s Dream” sequence is especially imaginative, with Grandma Fruma in a flying wheelchair.

Gordon Ramsay, the chef who puts the terror into every restaurant owner, returns for a sixth season as he treks across the country to help struggling restaurants keep their businesses above water (and in some cases cockroaches, rats, etc). When all seems to be in desperate despair, the restaurant owners turn to Ramsay and his team for one last hope before having to shut their doors. Many of these restaurants are beyond repair, leaving Ramsay to face a nearly impossible task. Some will close their doors, others will get back on their feet, but all are calling on Chef Ramsay to wake them up from their “Kitchen Nightmares,” airing at 7 p.m. Mondays on Fox 31. You’ll have chances to view local operations, after Ramsay’s “Kitchen Nightmares” made two stops in the Denver metro area last month. The kitchen commander visited Pantaleone’s on July 26 and Old Neighborhood in Arvada July 27-30. Be afraid, be very afraid! The Old Neighborhood has been an Arvada institution since 1980, serving a diverse menu of American, Mexican, Italian, French, Asian and even Cajun-inspired foods. Owners Alexa and Randy Kowalczyk are sure to be in for a test from Ramsay when it comes to Old Neighborhood’s gigantic menu. Pantaleone’s is a pizza and pasta restaurant at 2120 S. Holly in south Denver. Mr. On The Town and I visited Panteleone’s 10 years ago or so for a story he was writing on Denver’s best pizza and we left unimpressed. Still, many have raved about the pizza and pasta place owned by Pete and Paulette Fafalios. Look for the episodes later this summer on Fox 31. Best of luck to both restaurants!

American Ninja

Am I the only weirdo who watched “American Ninja” on 9News on July 22? Why? Because they filmed the segment in Denver a few blocks from my condo, but I knew nothing about it. The host is Matt Iseman, a Denver native. Iseman even talked about how happy he was to be back in his hometown during the show. The show is entertaining in the fact that it’s fiercely competitive while these folks compete in crazy stunts that defy all odds of gravity. The show is continuing at 7 p.m. Mondays. Rich Grant, the spokesmodel for Visit Denver, told me that the crew filmed all through the night roughly five weeks ago. The show was shot in Civic Center and really highlights downtown Denver in the dark.

Wicket games

Sophia Hummel performs as the fiddler and Leslie Wilburn as her son, also a fiddler, in Phamaly’s “Fiddler on the Roof.” Hummel has a special bow because her right arm was amputated at the elbow. Courtesy illustration This is an ideal play for a family outing with all but the littlest people. It offers a fine production of a story everyone should know, with clever staging and a lively band — and an introduction to some very courageous performers.

Denver’s premier croquet tournament returns to Cherry Creek on Aug. 2 when 60 teams compete on the outdoor plaza behind Elway’s restaurant. Up for grabs is the Wicket and Stick It silver cup or in the individual categories, which include best dressed, best hat and best wicket shot. Professional croquet master Ron Eccles and his team of croquet referees will be on hand to provide instruction and insider tips. Prized categories include top three teams, best dressed team, best dressed male and female, best hat male and female and best wicket shot.

TAG Burger Bar is in the planning stages of a second location in northwest Denver, bordering the Highland neighborhood. The casual burger joint led by chef Troy Guard now operates in Congress Park at 12th and Madison. A second location is planned in the former Subway Tavern & Pizzeria Longo’s space at 38th and Lipan (3759 Lipan St.). The Larimer Associates, which owns TAG Burger Bar, acquired the family-owned restaurant in September when Longo’s closed its doors after 52 years in business. A massive remodel is planned for the 3,000-square-foot space starting early September. Considering the age of the restaurant and lack of upgrades in recent years, Larimer Associates decided to gut it and start over with a remodel project that will likely take six months.

Tenor Andrew Lunsford performs “The Story of an Accidental Tenor” for the Denver Lyric Opera Guild. Courtesy photo

‘Accidental Tenor’ describes journey Singer shares his story with members of opera guild By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com When Andrew Lunsford was 15, he saw “Phantom of the Opera” onstage, and although he remembers not being happy about it, he knew all the words because his sister played the record constantly. “I learn best through my ears,” he said. That led to a visit to “Les Miserables,” where his jaw dropped when that chandelier fell. He got a CD. Another CD in the basement was “Opera’s Greatest Hits.” He sang along. He played a guitar at 15, but couldn’t read music. He married and had a young family and a growing business in construction — “I also had a passion for business.” Then the bottom fell out of homebuilding and his business cratered. “It might be fun to learn an aria,” he thought and his dad took him to Rockland Music in Lakewood. “Looking for an opera song” — “You mean an aria?” the clerk wondered. He talked about “tenorish arias” — “sad, depressing ... empty chairs, empty tables … the baritone always gets the girl.” His bankruptcy lawyer had heard him sing and suggested he look into performing at the Brown Palace Hotel, where he sand “Nessun Dorma” from “Turandot” and “This is the Moment” from “Jekyll and Hyde.” “I sang in `Beauty and the Beast’ for Performance Now,” he recalled, and was invited back for “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” A new journey had begun. He spoke to members of the Denver Lyric Opera Guild on July 18 at the group’s summer luncheon,

interspersing his story with favorite arias. He was accompanied by Gerald Holbrook and in sang duets with soprano Kimberli Render on two arias. (She was DLOG’s winner last year and will be teaching at CSU this year.) He started work with a voice teacher, sang in a “Five Tenors” concert for Denver Lyric Opera Guild and won the group’s annual competition for young singers. A full ride scholarship to Indiana University’s famed music school followed. While there, he performed at the Kennedy Center and in April debuted at Carnegie Hall in New York. He thought of his feet standing in the same place as great singers from the past. He just finished at Indiana — at age 34 — and has a number of engagements on his calendar as he starts on a professional career as an operatic tenor. In May 2014, he will sing with Opera Fort Collins, with Kimberli. He closed by saying how very much the support from the guild has meant to him. “It means we have a chance.” “We give away more money than any comparable organization in the country,” said active member Jane Gibson. Denver Lyric Opera Guild membership is open to all who are interested. The group meets monthly through the academic year, at various venues, for “Opera on Tuesday” — lunch and an operarelated program. It also hosts a Master Class and Preliminary and Final Competitions each year. (March 2014 dates are announced.) The competitions, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Englewood in 2013, are free and open to the public — offering a chance to hear wonderful young voices.

Women’s golf on the upswing Solheim puts spotlight on advances in sport By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Many of the elite players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association and Ladies European Tour will be heading to Parker for the Solheim Cup later this month. The biennial, prestigious match-play tournament pits 12 U.S.-born professionals against 12 European counterparts. Colorado golf fans will see accurate drives, pinpoint approach shots and clutch putts during the event, which will be held Aug. 13-18 at the Colorado Golf Club. The statistics show these players are hitting longer and scoring lower than ever before. But are the elite women of today really more skilled that the top players of yesteryear? That’s a debatable topic, because golf balls and equipment keep improving and make it easier for those golfers who have correct swing techniques to flirt with or better par. “Overall, more women are playing the game globally,” said 59-year-old Denver resident Hollis Stacy, who won 18 LPGA tournaments and collected four victories in majors during her 26-year career. “The same scores are winning on the LPGA and European tours. Golf is more competitive. There are more people shooting those low scores and winning. “What happened in the game is the equipment is much better. The skill levels have remained the same. We had women on the tour drive the ball 270 yards. If we had the same equipment and balls the players have now, the drives would be in the 300s.” Donna H. White, an LPGA teaching professional who played 15 seasons on the tour and won three events before retiring in 1992, claims today’s players are taking advantage of opportunities. “I am quite confident given the ball of today and agronomic grooming of fairways and greens that Mickey Wright’s scoring average would be 67 or better,” said White. “I don’t think players today are any more skilled. I believe they have been exposed to greater opportunities than mine or previous generations.” Wright won 82 tournaments in 14 years on the LPGA Tour, including four U.S. Women’s Opens and three LPGA Championships. She retired from the tour in 1969 and won four consecutive Vare Trophies, the award that goes to the player with the lowest scoring average. The lowest scoring average for Wright was 72.46 in 1960. For the past 16 seasons, the LPGA’s Vare winner has had an average of 70.21 or lower. In fact, no winner has had

White credits better competitive exposure, technology and fitness for the improved statistics for current professionals. “My era was the first to benefit from Title IX,” explained White. “Beth Daniel, Nancy Lopez and myself were able to attend college and gain invaluable competitive experience prior to joining the tour. Today kids can play in a tournament starting at age 4 every weekend. Tour players before me had to join the tour to compete. I couldn’t play soccer or baseball in my era. Today girls can play any sport they want. The skills and competitive maturity transfers nicely to golf. “The ball is the most influential technology advancement. Also video analysis. Health and fitness was always important to me. I ran and trained but few of my fellow tour players would join me. Then in the early-mid ‘80s , the health boom happened and we had fitness vans on tour weekly.” Mike Scanlan, LPGA Director of Media Communications, didn’t have the chance to watch some of the LPGA’s former standouts. “Whether or not players on the LPGA today are better than those in past generations is a subjective question,” he said. “I think the depth of the LPGA is certainly greater than it’s ever been thanks in large part to the growth of the game glob-

ally. Scoring averages are between one and two strokes better than they were in 1980, but advancements in technology must factor into that debate. Whether you look at 1950, 1980 or today, the best players in the world are playing on the LPGA.” Janet Moore, a five-time Colorado stroke play champion who spends part of the year in Illinois as Wheaton College’s women’s golf coach, has watched women’s golf and the skills of players grow in the state. “I’ve seen golf in Colorado grow over the years and I’ve seen the caliber of play improve greatly,” said Moore. “It seems like the juniors are getting younger and younger and better and better. That’s very exciting. “I started playing when I was 10. I played because my family played. From what I’ve seen, the game has grown and the interest has grown for young girls. The caliber of play has improved. Just in the high school ranks now you need three or four good players to do well. It has changed quite a bit. I played on my boys high school team. They didn’t have a girls team. I went to Wheat Ridge High School and they let me play on the boys team.” Colorado Women’s Golf Association Executive Director Robin Jervey noted enhanced play in Colorado tournaments. “We run 10 state championships, and looking at who plays in the championship

flights of those events, the handicaps of the elite players have been going down,” said Jervey. “And there is more depth.” Globalization of the LPGA tour, better equipment and the tour’s attempt to promote physically attractive players has made women’s golf more appealing, and events like the Solheim Cup may spark a desire for more women to start playing. “I know when the Women’s Open came to Cherry Hills in 2005, they had record crowds,” said Jervey. “It only had to help interest in the women’s game because it got people excited to see people of that skill level right in their own backyard. Both the CGA and CWGA have been offering discounts to our members to purchase tickets to the Solheim Cup. “People going to the Solheim Cup get to participate in something that probably won’t come to Colorado again. The Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup move around quite a bit. With it going overseas and back every two years, there’s a slim chance it would wind up in Colorado again, or if it does, it will be a long time from now. People should take advantage of this opportunity.” Moore agrees. “I would think having a prestigious event like the Solheim Cup in Colorado would certainly make a positive impact on the golfing community in general,” she said. “I think it would spur interest.”

Some fast facts about the Solheim Cup The Solheim Cup, featuring 12-player women’s teams from Europe and the United States in a match play tournament, will be held Aug. 13-18 at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker. Here are some things you may not know: • Kids get in free. All youngsters age 17 and under who are accompanied by a ticketed adult receive free admission to the Solheim Cup. There will also be a Solheim Cup for Kids program, an organized schedule of activities such as a scavenger hunt, face painting, daily drawings, interactive golf lessons and a behind-thescenes tour of the event. For more information, go to www.solheimcupusa.com • First-tee shenanigans are part of the fun when attending the Solheim Cup. Unlike a typical tournament, the first tee is the place to be and you might even hear

“Yankee Doodle” being sung. When players tee off each day, the atmosphere is raucous with fans from both sides yelling, chanting and singing songs to encourage players on the respective teams. • The three captains for the European team — captain Liselotte Neumann and assistants Annika Sorenstam and Carin Koch — are Swedish. “The three of us know each other very well,” said Sorenstam. “There will be some Swedish discussions so nobody will know what we’re talking about. We’ll keep that strategy to ourselves.” • European assistant captain Annika Sorenstam is married to Mike McGee, who is a U.S. citizen. “I told him you can come,” she said, “but only if you cheer for Europe.” • The United States has won eight of the 12 Solheim Cups and the Americas

are 6-0 in matches played on U.S. soil. “Having the crowd on your side is huge,” European captain Neumann admitted. “Obviously that will be one of the challenges for us. Coming into the U.S., the crowd will be big and not too many will be cheering for us. We’re trying to bring as many friends, family and fans that we can. We just hope the Europeans that come are really loud.” • Juli Inkster has earned the most points for the United States in Solheim Cup matches. Inkster scored 18½ points in nine Solheim events (15-12-7) for 54.41 percent of points earned. Meg Mallon, this year’s U.S. captain, won 16½ points (13-9-7) with 83.33 percent of points earned in eight Solheim tournaments. For the Europeans, Laura Davies played in all 12 of the previous Solheim events and won 25 points (2218-6) with 54.35 percent of points earned.

Broncos rack up Blooper Bowl wins There are two kinds of reality shows: Those that are bad and those that are worse. “Jersey Shore” was bad. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” was worse. “Being Bobby Brown,” bad. Being the barren mind behind “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” worse. And who among us doesn’t hold at least some sentiment that the producers of “Toddlers and Tiaras” should be considered for execution via guillotine — with a tiara glued to each one’s head, for poetic justice? Like Michael Jordan, you can’t stop reality shows; you just gotta hope to contain them by rolling your eyes and changing the channel. But if you’re a member of the Denver Broncos organization, it’d be hypocritical of you to talk trash about TV’s garbage. That’s because off-season after offseason, all the team does is pump out reality show-like drama. Sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it’s not. But, seeing as how the team hasn’t been to a Super Bowl since the 1998 season, Broncos’ drama is, at the very least, getting old. The Broncos have been the NFL leaders in off-season drama for about five years now, going back to 2008, with Mike Shanahan’s starring role in the team’s version of “Chopped,” during his firing as head coach. In 2009, the Broncos rolled out the short-lived “Kid Nation,” with the hiring of the 5-year-old Josh McDaniels as their coach. Then, in the spring of that year, McDaniels thought it would be fun to mortgage the team’s future by trading in their second-, third- and fourth-

f the said

round NFL draft picks to the Baltimore Ravens, in order to grab Tim Tebow in the first round — kind of like McDaniels was running the team like it was a lemonade stand, but got duped into giving back change for a 50 to a bully who paid him with 20 bucks in Monopoly money. Oh, and on April 2, just a couple of weeks before drafting Tebow, the Broncos traded starting quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears. Less than two weeks after that, star wide receiver Brandon Marshall was traded to Miami. It was “Extreme Makeover” time in Denver. Then, during the miserable 2010 season, owner Pat Bowlen — who finally realized his mistake of handing over the organization’s keys to a dude who was still getting around on a bicycle that had training wheels — fired McDaniels. Bowlen then brought John Elway into the front office, before Elway, “The Apprentice,” hired John Fox as head coach. Then, in 2011, came everyone’s favorite off-season reality show, “So, You Think You Can Pass?” starring Tim Tebow. Tebow Drama dominated Broncos camp that year, which proved to be too much for the pedestrian quarterback Kyle Orton to

handle. Then, after actually making the playoffs under Tebow, the Broncos embarked on their next reality hit, last year’s “Who wants to marry a Manning?” Peyton, that is. Enter the P-Man, exit the T-Man. And just when you thought the off-season drama would finally come to an end this season, the Broncos produced three more reality shows: The Wes Welker-inspired “Keeping Up With The Patriots”; Elvis Dumervil’s hit, “Are You Smarter Than A Fax Machine?”; And, on the heels of two team executives being arrested on charges of drunken driving — “Cops.” Oh, and last but not least, then came the recent drug allegations against star linebacker Von Miller, proving that “Big Brother” is indeed watching over Denver. Can the Broncos overcome this year’s off-season distractions? We shall see. All I know is that while the team continues to lead the league in reality drama year after year, the organization has been without a fresh Vince Lombardi Trophy for a very long time. Broncos’ reality shows may make for some intriguing, real-life drama. But unless Denver makes it to the Super Bowl this year, the Broncos will look like the “Biggest Losers,” while their fans will be staring in their own reality show: “Punk’d.” In addition to writing sports columns, Vic Vela covers the Legislature for Colorado Community Media.

The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network based at the Colorado Climate Center at Colorado State University is looking to add a few hundred observers to its Denver area network during August. All it takes to be involved is the purchase of an official rain gauge ($30) and a commitment to help monitor the local climate by taking precipitation measurements as often as possible. The data is reported to the CoCoRaHS website and daily maps of local precipitation patterns are produced. Training is offered in person or online; a list of Denver area training classes can be found at http://www.cocorahs.org/State.aspx?state=CO.
